Microsoft Publisher.

I'd use Windows... but I like the Mac OS more.

You'll need to find a Windows machine that has Microsoft Publisher installed as only Publisher can open .pub files.

Microsoft knows better than to offer Publisher on Macs that run Quark, InDesign, etc. It's only made for Windows...

But, if you've got a windows machine, bootcamp or Virtual PC then that's totally an option.

Good luck!
